Book Club July Picks

Looking for someone to discuss a book with? Some of you may know I run two book clubs on Goodreads.  One is the Young Adult Book Club and the other is the Stephen King Fans group.  Both groups are open to everyone.. so be sure to stop by and join us.  We have just started our July discussions so it is the perfect time for you to stop by.




This month for the Stephen King Fan group we are discussing The Regulators.  We read Desperation last time so this is a perfect companion book for that one.



From the bestselling author of Thinner comes the harrowing story of a magically gifted child in the grip of the darkest evil. Seth Garon, a young boy whose supernatural powers are just awakening, finds himself in a world where absolutely terrifying things are not locked in the imagination but are free to come true.

Next up we have the Young Adult Book Club's book for July.  We are reading The Coldest Girl in town by Holly Black.




Tana lives in a world where walled cities called Coldtowns exist. In them, quarantined monsters and humans mingle in a decadently bloody mix of predator and prey. The only problem is, once you pass through Coldtown’s gates, you can never leave. One morning, after a perfectly ordinary party, Tana wakes up surrounded by corpses. The only other survivors of this massacre are her exasperatingly endearing ex-boyfriend, infected and on the edge, and a mysterious boy burdened with a terrible secret. Shaken and determined, Tana enters a race against the clock to save the three of them the only way she knows how: by going straight to the wicked, opulent heart of Coldtown itself. The Coldest Girl in Coldtown is a wholly original story of rage and revenge, of guilt and horror, and of love and loathing from bestselling and acclaimed author Holly Black.

  4. The Regulators is on my to-read list and I'd love to join in this month, but it have some books I really want to read first like Mr Mercedes. I have to finish my current read before that. I will look forward to your review though.

  8. The bookclubs on goodreads are fun. I actually started there before I ever started blogging. I even was on goodreads before any social networking for me (twitter, facebook). I still like going there and chatting about books.
